Love--By Emile Pinet--Canada

Love

Love
Is what
Defines us
Human beings,
For it touches on
The fabric of our souls
And fills a void in our hearts.
Nothing else can bring us such joy,
Or inflict such devastating pain,
For it’s both the alpha and omega.

Emile Pinet was born in a small city, (Bathurst) New Brunswick, Canada, the third eldest of thirteen children, ten girls and three boys. He is the product of a semi-dysfunctional family, brought up by a physically abusive and controlling father, versus a loving, nurturing mother. Many of his poems reflect the uniqueness of nature, which he loves, and his poetic observations of life in general. Emile is 66 years old and has been writing poems since he was about 35.   The ideas started to come to him rapidly one day at work-- he decided to write them down and express himself through his poetry.
